Q: "Plugged in, not charging"

My laptop says it is "plugged in, not charging".I have restarted twice.I have tried using the adapter for another Pavillion Notebook 15, it does not help.I ran the HP Support Assistant battery check, my computer charged whilst the check took place (I got to 3%), the test said the battery was "ok" and finished. Shortly after the notebook stopped charging again.What should I try next?ThanksC

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Thank you
(I'm running windows 10 X64)

Hi Guys, I have had to change my battery, got a brand new DELL battery but I can't get it to charge...I'm running Windows 10 PRO. I have tried the fixes listed above but unfortunately NONE has solved my problem. Any suggestions?

A:XPS 12 9Q23 Power Charging Disabled / Plugged in, NOT CHARGING

Hi DAEMONROD.
Where have you purchased the battery from? Does the old battery charge fine when plugged in?
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Test another power adapter and check. If the adapter fits in loose, then the dc port needs to be replaced. You would need this part.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hello and peace on you..
I have a DELL Inspiron N5110 from early 2011
I was using the laptop correctly..The laptop was plugged in and the battery was charging..Then i removed the charger let the laptop on battery until suddenly the laptop shuts down without even telling me that the battery is low or even leaving some "emergency" charge on it (usually 7% or 5% i don't know)..I plugged it in to charge it again and open my leptop and i found out that the battery is not taking charge anymore!
I tried to see if the propblem is with the connector and tried to remove and put in again the charger and it ddid not work
i tried also to remove the battery and put it in again, it did not help
Now it is stuck on 2% of charge from 5 days and it's plugged in!
The laptop says that the battery is charging, but actually it is not charging and the charge level is the same from days
I looked up some solutions online like uninstalling ACPI microsof from Device manager and reboot the laptop..It did not work
"Jauge de batterie" which is an integrated software related to DELL, says that the battery health is good and that my battery is working properly
The laptop works fine with only the charger plugged in and battery out
PS: the laptop heats usually but i think it did not affect the battery at all since it was working fine and the charge took me about at minimum 30 min on high performance to be emptyed before this happens.
Please, i'm seeking for help

A:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

Hey,

I just got my computer back from having the motherboard switched out because of another problem, but now my battery will not charge. The light is on and it says it is charging, but it isn't. Should I attempt a gauge reset or something else?

It is a Lenovo y50, which I have had for 3 months. The battery needs to be unscrewed from the back.
Thanks!
 

A:Says plugged in and charging, but is not charging. Just got motherboard fixed.

If it is not charging maybe the battery is defective.
Did they gave you back the original charger?
Did they install another different motherboard which might use a different charger?

Hi,
I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.
Any help is appreciated!

I am not sure if the battery is the problem, but it seems to be. When plugged in, the battery will not charge UNLESS the computer is shut down. Then it seems to charge. When turned back on, it might charge for a minute or two but then it's back to the message "plugged in, not charging." The battery life stays consistant when plugged in, it just won't charge any higher. At the moment it is stuck at 87% after dying on me this morning. I was working perfectly last night.  I have taken the battery out and turned the computer on with only the AC plugged in and it does work. My theory is it's the battery but I'm not sure.  The last thing I did was run a battery test and an AC adapter test through the UEFI menu. Both passed. Can someone please help?

Need Help!

The problem started from June 2, 2015 about 4 AM (UTC +8:00 Philippine, Manila)

I open my Notebook that morning to check on my e-mails and bills at gmail but it's not powering up. At first I thought that the battery was slightly drained because I saw my sister still using it at midnight. I asked her if she did not plugged in the charger when it is nearly drained but she said she plugged it and it is still full when she shut it down.

It is Li-ion Battery

I tried plugging in the charger to check whether it still has remaining battery. It powered up.
On the taskbar/notifications/running apps it says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging).
So to check out the problem, I left it turned off charging for about two hours.

Then after two hours it still says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
What the hell is this?! I asked my self.
I installed an app to check the status of the battery (Battery Bar)
Battery Bar says something like this:
Capacity: 2K of 8K mWh (not sure about this)
Charging: 0 mW
Running on AC
7.9% Available
Something like that.

Summary Notes:
1. Does not power up without Charger
2. It detects the Battery saying 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
3. Though Plugged In, Charging it does not charge at all because of 0 mW charge rate
4. It turns off when the Charger is plugged out.
5. It still run even without the Battery (when the Charger was plugged in of course, then a red x mark shows in the notification taskbar battery icon)

Hello, I am not sure if this is in the right section but...

Recently my laptop's battery indicator has said "plugged in, not charging" at random times. It is at random times as I said and it does charge and can hold a charge. The battery check was fine. I am at a loss at what to do. I have an HP G60 235DX. HP wants me to send it out because they believe it's the needle inside the laptop... I'm not so sure of this. They didn't seem to understand what I was saying nor even try to.
 

A:Plugged in, not charging.

Hi pinta, and welcome to TSG.

The problem may be that the laptop is sensing that the AC adapter is plugged into the computer but sometimes there is no voltage coming through the connection.

The "needle" the support person was referring to might be the center pin of the power jack on the laptop. Its solder connection inside the laptop may be broken and intermittent or it is not making good contact with the plug from the adapter.

EDIT: If the power jack in the laptop is on its own small circuit board, it may use small round needle like contacts to plug into the main board. An intermittent connection through one of those pins might also cause the fault message.

I am more than a bit annoyed.

I got this HP pavilion "entertainment PC" last September so i could get back to school. I upgraded to Windows 7 In Late November and really started to used the computer in January. I began to notice two things. 1) Even though it was a so-called "Entertainment PC," The battery life when not connected is at 20 minutes at best when viewing media, and around 40 when not. 2) When the AC adapter is plugged in, the battery will not charge. Instead, I get a message stating "Plugged in, not charging"

I have tried turning the pc off , waiting and then turning it back on.
I have tried removing the battery, waiting, and then putting it back in
I have tried removing the battery drivers, and lettign the system restore them automatically, upon restarting.

The last solution worked for a few moments, the charge went u to 40, then 45 % then it suddenly stopped charging again.
Now nothing I do will get it to charge. I contacted HP Customer Service. Their solution is to send me a new battery, but only After i give them my Credit card number so they can hold it. I am under warranty they refuse to assist me without me paying them and I cannot afford to.

A:Plugged in, Not Charging

Hi Kuru, To me its a duff battery and it has to go. Its only going to get worse and worse until it holds no charge at all. You said "but only After i give them my Credit card number so they can hold it."
Can you please clarify that they wanted you to pay for the replacement battery or the cost of sending it to you ?

Perhaps they might think you are not telling the truth so you can get a new battery and sell on. In taking CC details they can charge you for a new one if you don't send back the old one ?
Unless the battery is excluded from the guarentee, not sure about US consumer protection laws
But if they just want postage then you might like to reconsider. Please clarify.

This problem intermittently occurred when using Windows7, and continues to happen intermittently after upgrading to Windows 10.  I notice that status reads "Plugged in but not charging", with blinking white light near adapter. If I shutdown, the problem seemingly persists (blinking white light). If I simply remove and replace the battery while powered off, charging resumes and works for a while (maybe a day or two), but before long I have to repeat the process. I need to get an additional laptop for my wife, and was hoping to get another Envy 15, but she will not be able to deal with this kind of a problem. I've read a number of other posts on this problem, but not seeing a definite solution.

Hi NIRO222,
Is the adapter frayed? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter jack hold still and firm or does it fall off easily? The alternate adapters and batteries you have tried, are they Dell products certified for your system model?
If possible, update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1WweDdU
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status with and without the adapter connected. Also, wiggle the adapter jack while connected to the system and check if the adapter status changes at any point in BIOS.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
Keep us updated.

This is the second time I had this problem. The first time, replacing the whole power brick and cord fixed it. Now, about a year later, the same thing is happening! The battery is only at 40% and it has a horrible battery life. The adapter is an igo green adapter, so the computer MUST be in use for it to charge. Hitting the button on the brick when the power is off does nothing. What do I do? This is my main computer and I would be lost without it. My son needs it for homework often and he would FAIL without it.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 running windows 7 RC and recently developed this problem a couple of nights ago. On and off before that I would get the message, unplugged the AC power, plug it back in and it would start charging again. It has now developed into a permanent problem.I have googled this issue and found everything I can find on how to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Others have tried replacing batteries, motherboards, power supplies and reloading OS's. What works for one person doesn't always work for another. Most solutions are just temporary band-aids to what seems to be a growing problem. Has this issue been addressed in the final release? I had been running windows XP for years and never had a problem; it has only been since installing Windows 7 that the problem began. If this is a driver issue inside of Windows is Microsoft planning on issuing an update to fix the issue or are they just banking on 7 fixing all the issues that Vista has? This is not a brand specific issue as far as PC's go, I am an IT professional and have spoken with many other IT folks about it and nobody has been able to get an answer out of Microsoft and the laptop companies (Dell, HP ect.) are milking more money out of users by telling them they need new batteries, power supplies and motherboards that at best are a temporary solution. This issue really needs to be addressed.

Hello,
I have Dell inspiron 13 7359 laptop. I bought this in November 2015. I have a strange problem with this laptop currently.  When i plug it in, it shows "Plugged in not charging" and the laptop speed dramatically slows down. When i unplug it, it behaves normally. 
It also displays "AC Adapter not recognized" while booting up. I tried everything i can.
1) I bought a new AC adapter - when i plugged it in for the first time it got charged, i thought the problem is fixed. Then the issue started occurring since the second charge onwards.
2) I updated the BIOS - Did not fix the problem
3) I Reinstalled the windows - Did not fix the problem
4) I replaced the battery - Did not fix the problem
5) I replaced the DC connector (the DC socket to the laptop) - Did not fix the problem
6) I even replaced the mother board - Did not fix the problem.
7) I tried charging it at different power outlets - Did not fix the problem
8) I bought a new AC adapter (this time 65W) - Worked for the first charge, but it behaves the same way from the second charge onwards. 
I am really fed up with this and don't know what to do. Please help me. I stay in a small country in Illinois and have no authorized dell service centre to which i can take my laptop to. Any kind of help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sai

I bought a dell inspiron for my (teenage) daughter about a year ago, a few months after the charger wasn't being recognized.It said it needed a 50 watt charger, but the one I had was 55 watts. We kept it plugged in even though it wasn't charging because she needed to use the laptop. Everything was slow though... it said system performance would slow down which ***. I've bought a bunch of new chargers. All 50+ watts.All have the same problem. After a while for the battery it said "no battery detected" even though there WAS a battery in there. I bought a new charger and a new battery yesterday. The battery I put in was at about 35% charge and was recognized. However, when I plugged in the charger, it said plugged in not charging. Again, we (she) kept it in because she does use this laptop quite frequently. Today I noticed that AGAIN, no battery was detected. I am annoyed and we are going to take the laptop in (hopefully) for repairs tomorrow. I don't know if I'm currently going to be able to afford it. What is the issue? 

A:Plugged in not charging

Only OEM Dell adapters will charge the battery.  If you've tried more than one OEM adapter, the problem is with the DC jack (next thing to replace;  if you need the part reference, we'll need the full model number - i.e., Inspiron 3552, etc.).
If the jack doesn't get the adapter recognized,  then the issue is likely with the mainboard.

Hi there,

I have been having multiple problems with my laptop, even after doing clean re-instal twice.

When ever I plug in the charger, it says-plugged in, not charging. I googled the problem and read about the following advice in a thread here, it advised me to shutdown the laptop, take out the battery, restart, go to device manager, under batteries, uninstall Microsoft ACPI- Complaint Control Method battery, shut down, replece battery and it will work. Well, it does work, till such time it is on and its back to square one after it is restarted.

I had read about this here in this thread
dell laptop battery not charging

in the link given, which is Plugged in, not charging Windows 7 solution : Jeffrey Palermo (.com)

The other problem I'm facing is that while typing, the cursor jumps on its own to the previous column.

the third issue is that I'm unable to understand how to reolve the issue about Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) 3.0 + High Speed Adapter, see the screen shot of the device manager.

I hope I've posted the thread in the right section

Hello,

I re-formatted my laptop today, and now the battery icon says "Plugged in, not charging" for most of the time. If I remove the battery/powersupply/reinstall driver it works for a minute or so, then goes back to this.

Pretty sure it's software related, as this happened exactly after a windows re-install.

Anyone had an issue like this they can fix?
 

A:Plugged in and not charging

some computers have a thing that if the battery is above a certain percentage, it doesnt charge. this is to preserve the battery health.

Computer is from America (110v), but I am living in Jordan (240v)... although charger does say it should take 110-240v.

I am currently using this transformer:

It has been 3 months the battery is not getting charged. When I hover the mouse, it shows "Plugged in, not charging" And now the battery is not giving any backup at all. The moment I remove the AC Adapter, it turns off. I know it can be fixed by the Firmware update but I am not able to find any BIOS update on HP website.Please help me with this issue.  Just give the steps and I will be doing the troubleshooting myself.

A:Plugged in, not charging

Do you know if the laptop is still under warranty? Here a few things to try: 1. Unplug the powercord from the outlet, wait a few minutes then plug it in a different outlet in a different room. 2.  Examine the entire length of the power cord for tears, dents, and worn-down insulation. If you notice any, or if the power brick is warped or smells like burnt plastic, the cord is probably faulty. 3. If the cord's attachment to your laptop wobbles or feels loose, there could be a problem with the connection. Unplug the cord, remove debris with a wooden toothpick, and remove heavy dust build-up with compressed air. 4. Shut down the computer, remove the battery, and plug the computer in. If the computer won't turn on, you probably need a new cord. If you can start it up again in this situation, the charging issue is probably due to the battery itself, or your computer's interaction with the battery.
